Comments: " A landmark in the annals of American photography and polar adventure, William Bradford's book THE ARCTIC REGIONS was first published for subscribers in 1873. No more than 300 copies of the leather bound elephant folio are known to have been printed. This book has been a prized possession of major American and European Museums and libraries, and a few fortunate collectors, ever since. Now with an introduction written by the noted polar historian Russell A. Potter, THE ARCTIC REGIONS is for the first time being made available in a convenient and accessible format - and at an affordable price. As the pace of global climate change quickens and the magnificent Arctic icecap dwindles, its publication could not be more timely or important" .
